We build basic services, improve livelihoods, strengthen the rights of women and children, help communities protect against natural disasters, and respond to humanitarian emergencies. Our community-led approach gives ordinary Afghans a voice in their own development, making them active participants in shaping the future of their country.

With our years of experience, our majority Afghan team, and our deep understanding of local, cultural and ethnic issues, we have earned great trust and respect among the communities we serve. This has allowed us to gain access to some of the most underserved areas of the country.


Our vision

A peaceful and thriving Afghanistan.


Our mission

To provide rural Afghans with the training and tools they need to help themselves, their families and their communities. We particularly target vulnerable households – including those headed by women, or with elderly, chronically ill or disabled family members. Every day, our dedicated staff are on the ground providing life-saving support and long-term solutions for vulnerable communities. We need your help to continue this work.
